Tukpoom Goryeo 2017 thumbnail
Tukpoom Goryeo 2017
The 2017 batch is all about subtlety and sweetness. The vegetal notes limit themselves to the aroma in this tea, while the taste is light, creamy, and quite sweet. This is a green tea with a high level of polish, showcasing (in the words of the tea maker) the “full aroma and energy, which are expected from a high grade green tea made out of small tender leaves during the early spring.”

Woojeon Goryeo 2017
The 2017 batch is here! The standard in high-end Korean greens, this year’s tea is excellent. Of particular note is the fine interplay between the initial vegetal notes and sweet finish.

Saejak Goryeo 2017 thumbnail
Saejak Goryeo 2017
The 2017 batch has an excellent aroma from the dry leaves, and a smooth flavor that transitions from vegetal to sweet. This one is very much in the style of the Woojeon from the same season, but provides a more straightforward taste experience.

Joongjak Ssanggye 2017 thumbnail
Joongjak Ssanggye 2017
The 2017 batch has a particularly creamy quality to the rich flavor. Although the dry leaves exhibit a classic fresh, green aroma, the flavor of this batch is mellow and expansive with only hints of vegetal green-ness. Very satisfying and easy to sip.

Woojeon Hongcha Goryeo 2017 thumbnail
Woojeon Hongcha Goryeo 2017
Woojeon-grade leaves processed into a black tea by the same producer as the Woojeon green tea. With layers of complexity, this one brings black tea to a whole new level.

Saejak Goryeo 2016 thumbnail
Saejak Goryeo 2016
This batch was processed with a light touch compared to the more-roasted 2015 saejak. The result is a rich, green tea with clear vegetal notes, very much the younger sibling of the 2016 woojeon. In contrast, the 2015 batch has a lighter overall flavor but a very sweet finish. The differences between the two reflect the drier-than-usual spring of 2015 and the adjustments in processing made to compensate.

Saejak Goryeo 2015 thumbnail
Saejak Goryeo 2015
This tea is made in the same style as the woojeon and tukpoom grades, but is picked just a little later and therefore commands a lower price. Nonetheless, it is substantially more refined than the comparatively entry-level Joongjak.

Tukpoom Goryeo 2016 thumbnail
Tukpoom Goryeo 2016
Highly refined and smooth, with the creamiest texture and greatest complexity among the various grades of Korean green tea. Favorable weather this spring has made the Goryeo tea makers very happy with their teas in general, and this batch is among their best. Very limited availability.

Nambanggain thumbnail
Nambanggain
Reflecting both the global nature of current tea production and local innovation, this semi-oxidized (oolong) tea is made from the small Korean leaves typically destined for competition-grade green tea, but instead processed using techniques typically associated with Taiwanese baihao oolong (a.k.a. dongfang meiren) production. The result is a tea similar in its basic profile to a fruit-sweet Taiwanese baihao, but with greater delicacy.

Woojeon Cheongcha 2010 thumbnail
Woojeon Cheongcha 2010
Rich and expansive flavor, and very creamy compared to the Goryeo green teas from the same season. As is typical with this style of oolong, the character of the green leaves seems to be magnified by the oxidation process. Because of the delicacy of the leaves, this tea is best brewed with somewhat lower temperature water in the style of a green tea.

Tukseon Cheongcha Goryeo
This tea is one grade up from the Woojeon Cheongcha, and is in the realm of "competition grade" teas. It is considerably milder than the Woojeon with a more expansive flavor. 70g quantities (two bags) are also packaged in a fancy paper box.
